Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented J an. 2, 1917.
Application filed September-29, 1916. Serial No.'122,911. 7
To all whom it may concern;
Be it 'lmownthat we, EDWARD C. MOHR and REMUs A. BEACH, -citizens of the United poured into a tank or receptacle.
The invention aims primarily to provide a strainer or filter in connection with a funnel, whereby-the fluid is relieved of all impurities and foreign matter as the receptacle is filled.
A further object of the invention is to provide a device of this character wherein the fluid directed into the funnel is spread or broken up before passing to the filter and which embodies a catch basin to receive and to retain the water or other foreign liquid as the gasolene passes through the filter and out through the neck of thefunnel.
Still further objects --are'to provide a de vice of this character which is of extremely simple and inexpensive construction; which is composed of but few readily assembled parts, all of which are so assembled and correlated as to prevent wear, breakage or derangement, which filters during the pouring operation, so as to obviate a separate or independent filtering rocess, and which will prove thoroughly e cient in attaining the ends set forth.
With these objects in view, together with others which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the novel formation, combination and arrangement of parts, all as will be described more fully hereinafter, illustrated in the drawings, and particularly pointed out in the claims.
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a longitudinal sectional view taken through a filter embodying the invention; and Fig. 2 is a detail plan view taken'on line 22 ofFig. 1.
Referring now more particularly to the drawing, 3 indicates the bowl or mouth portion of, a conventional form of funnel, and 4: is the neck thereof.
Arranged across the bowl portion of the funnel and slightly above the juncture of the neck 4 with the said bowl portion, is a wall or diaphragm 5, the latter being formed of any suitablematerial, preferably, however, tin or other metal similar to that of which the funnel itself is formed. This diaphragm may be soldered or in any other desired manner secured to the walls of the bowl 3, and is provided with a relatively small central aperture 6, through which liquid may fiow to the reduced neck portion 4. The diaphragm 5 is provided with an upstanding exteriorly threaded annular flange 7, the latter being concentric with the aperture 6, and of approximately one-half the diameter of the diaphragm.
Threaded upon the upstanding flange 7 so as to be readily attached to and detached from the same is a band 8. This band is of in position upon the said flange liquid poured into the funnel must rise consider-- able degree before reachingthe level ofthe upper edge of the band, This arrangement provides an annular catch basin or pocket 9 for the reception of liquid poured intothe funnel bowl.
A cylinder of close mesh wire fabric or netting 10 is soldered at one end to the annular band 8 so as to project upwardly from the same, and the upper end of the cylinder is closed by a metallic cap piece 11. The cylinder is relatively long, and is of a mesh of such gage as will prevent solid matter passing through the same, and also to thoroughly disintegrate liquid entering the interior of the cylinder. The exterior wall of the band 8 is also threaded as shown, to detachably receive an interiorly threaded ring 12. This ring carries a metallic cylinder'13, the latter being open at both ends, and is connected to the ring adjacent its lower end and is held spaced from the latter by arms 14. The arrangement is such that when the ring 12 has been screwed tightly upon the band 8, the lower edge of the cylinder 13 will be spaced above the diaphragm 5. When in this position, the upper open end of the cylinder 13 terminates in substantially the same plane with the cap 11.
In operation, the funnel is placed in the opening of the tank to be filled. Liquid, such as gasolene, is directed into the funnel and against the cap 11. The liquid striking the said cap, is deflected, and splashes to all sides of the interior of the funnel. This causes the liquid to separate as it falls into the pocket 9, and particles of water which l may be present in the gasolene, being heavier than the latter, settle at the bottom of said pocket. As the liquid rises, the gasolene upon the top of the water passes upwardly between the band 8 and the cylinder 13 and through the wire fabric cylinder 10 to the interior of the latter cylinder, whereupon the gasolene passes through the aperture 6 and into the reduced neck 4. Foreign matter present in the gasolene will be prevented from entering through the fine mesh fabric 10, and it is obvious that only the pure gaso lene will be permitted to enter the tank. The ready detachability of the various parts permits of the same being easily cleaned or repaired when required, and the device obviates the use of chamois skins and other filtering fabrics now generally used for the purpose of preventing foreign matter gaining access to the tank being filled. After the tank has become filled, the funnel may be removed and the water which has colected in the pocket 9 may be poured there- 'rom.
While the present illustration is that of the preferred embodiment of the invention, it is obvious that various changes in the minor details of construction and arrange ment of parts may beresorted to, if desired, without departing from the spirit of the invention or exceeding the scope of the claims.
What is claimed is .1. The combination with a funnel, of a diaphragm in said funnel having an aperture, a band surrounding said aperture and projecting upwardly from said diaphragm, a filter member carried by said band, and a cylinder secured to said band and surrounding said filtering member.
2. The combination with a funnel, of a diaphragm having an aperture arranged in said funnel, an upstanding member detachably secured to said diaphragm and surrounding said aperture, a fabric cylinder secured at its lower end to said upstanding member, a cap for said cylinder, and a cylinder carried by said upstanding member and inclosing said fabric cylinder and being opened at its upper end.
3. The combination with a funnel, of an apertured diaphragm in said funnel, a mesh fabric cylinder projecting upwardly from said diaphragm and arranged concentric with said aperture, and a metallic cylinder detachably carried by said mesh cylinder.
4. The combination with a funnel, of a diaphragm in said funnel having an aperture, a flange surrounding said aperture, a band threaded on said flange, a mesh cylinder secured to said band and projecting above said diaphragm, a cap for closing the upper end of said cylinder, a metallic cylinder detachably secured to said ring and surrounding said mesh cylinder and having its walls spaced from those of said mesh cylinder, and the upper end of said metal cylinder being open.
In testimony whereof we aflix our signa tures in presence of two witnesses.
